NaToSaphiX, HS set to join Nordavind

Niels-Christian "⁠NaToSaphiX⁠" Sillassen and Kevin "⁠HS⁠" Tarn are on the brink of joining Nordavind, HLTV.org has confirmed.

The pair have already been added to Nordavind's ESEA roster and are expected to be formally unveiled by the Norwegian organisation in the coming days.

They have been brought in as replacements for Haris "⁠H4RR3⁠" Hadzic, who became a free agent at the end of 2019, and Håkon "⁠hallzerk⁠" Fjærli, who is reportedly on the brink of joining Dignitas alongside Patrik "⁠f0rest⁠" Lindberg and three former NiP players.

NaToSaphiX will take over the AWP from hallzerk

HS has been out of a contract since October, when he was released by GamerLegion after approximately two weeks on the organisation's bench.

NaToSaphiX was given his marching orders by Heroic in August to make way for Johannes "⁠b0RUP⁠" Borup, who was signed from Tricked. He ended the year in style as he played for mousesports at cs_summit 5 in Özgür "⁠woxic⁠" Eker's stead, helping the team to win the title following victories over OG and G2 in the playoffs.

With these additions, Nordavind will have the following roster:

Norway Ruben "⁠RUBINO⁠" Villarroel
Norway Jorgen "⁠cromen⁠" Robertsen
Denmark Jesper "⁠TENZKI⁠" Plougmann
Estonia Kevin "⁠HS⁠" Tarn
Denmark Niels-Christian "⁠NaToSaphiX⁠" Sillassen

Denmark Dennis "⁠Rytter⁠" Rytter (coach)

on penta, he consistently put up solid stats at big events while playing support, this year, he's been pretty bad. overall, he has pretty good aim, but unless his form improves he's a questionable pickup.
